PUEBLO – Pueblo County sheriff’s deputies will change careers for a few hours Saturday afternoon to raise money to battle childhood cancer.

Deputies will be at Musso’s Restaurant for a tip a cop event to benefit the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to funding research and treatment for children with childhood cancer.  Deputies will be raising funds from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Saturday’s event marks the latest fundraiser to benefit St. Baldrick’s. Deputy Brad Riccillo has raised money for St. Baldrick’s for six years, and he recently helped organize a fundraising event last week to encourage people to discuss the impacts of childhood cancer.

Riccillo wants to raise more than $20,000 in 2019 for the organization.
